Friday Finds: All Things Fourth of July

I LOVE the Fourth of July. Is it just me or does everything Fourth of July seem to incorporate all of our favorite things? Celebrating America, family fun, great food and then the cocktail and cool whip Gods unite for an extra dose of fun. Seriously, cool whip is a must for the Fourth, am I right?

First things first, I wouldn't mind trying this white wine sangria. We had a sangria a few weekends ago and it was pretty good- I only had it once before! What is your favorite sangria recipe? I like that this one uses fresh berries to top it off.



While we're at it, who doesn't love a poptail? These cocktail coolers look so refreshing after spending the day on the beach. Make them this weekend so you have a treat waiting in the freezer on Thursday! 


There are so many good desserts out there that look beautiful for the Fourth. However, the simplicity of this one caught my eye. The link doesn't provide a recipe but we can assume all we need is pound cake, cool whip and fresh berries for this yummy treat!


The American tablescape looks so pretty and peaceful. I love the blue and white dishes. I must get myself some blue and white dishes- it's on my list.


If Weeks was eating big boy food, I would so make him these pancakes. Ok, I might ask my Dad to make him them, because he is usually the one in charge of breakfast when we are all together. Next year Weeks, you get Fourth of July pancakes! 


I'm linking up with the ladies of 5 on Friday- make sure to check it out!


I hope you all have a wonderful summer weekend!

Happy Weekend, Katie!! xx

Those pancakes look so fun! I also love the idea of cutting pineapple into a star shape with a cookie cutter and putting it in drinks! Saw that on Little Baby Garvin blog.
